One of my favourite 50's sitcoms
There have been plenty of "I Love Lucy" rip-off's over the years, But this is the best. The show did have uneven writing, But this episode is quite strong. Joan Davis shines with talent, and Jim Backus proves he could do more than "Gilligan's Island". In this episode, Joan discovers a wall-safe and tries to open it, with unexpected results! The main problem is the Laugh-Track, which sounds really fake. But since "I Love Lucy" won't start entering the public domain until 2045, This is a great substitute.
